so mounted, it is the usual practice for prospective buyers
to examine and evaluate the fur of the inside-out pelt. In
this manner the pelt is often damaged and its value pro
portionately lowered owing to the inadequacy of the in
spection opening or “window” at the lower or tail end. 15
Accordingly, it is the primary object of the present inven
tion to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth,
novel means -for providing an opening or “window” in the
mounted pelt of suñicient size to permit the fur «to be rap
idly »and carefully inspected »without damaging said pelt.
Another important object of this invention is to provide
a drying plate of the character descri-bed which is adapted
to be readily inserted in the pelt and secured in position
on the usual board.
Other objects of the invention are to provide an im
proved pelt drying plate of the aforementioned character
which will be comparatively simple in construction,
strong, durable, compact, of light weight and which may
«be manufactured at low cost.
advantage in FIGURE 4 of the drawing, the drying plate
pushes up the skin on the belly side of the pelt to provide
the desired opening, after which the retaining tack 10 is
inserted. After the pelt îtl‘ has been dried the device may
be quickly removed to be used on another pelt.
The yforegoing is considered as illustrative only of the
principles of the invention. Further, since numerous
modiñcations and changes will readily occur to those
skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention
20 to the exact construction and operation shown and de
scribed, and accordingly all suitable modifications and
equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope
of the invention »as claimed.
